Begging for your hand,
Screaming at your face
come with me here
we'll leave this place
I'm all yours because I hate this house
and how sad it makes you
in the morning
that I'm hoping never comes
I just want to watch the sky and some
stars are out I do believe
cause this winter came,
I think we made it through the freeze

Someday we'll drive
away
and cut up my face
because it's too plain
you are this..
I swear it's this town I'll never see
again if
I have my way in time
just to see, see, see
I swear it's this town I will not see

Haha, ha, haha
I tricked you again
Anything but silence
anything you say
will stay in my head for days, and days
and I'm sorry we couldnt make it back this evening
but I'm still hoping
We have to move or so it seems
I guess the hospitals are near
cause I can hear those
screams
and your breathing over me
well haha, ha
I tricked you once again
because you are nothing...
but I promise

Someday we'll drive away
and cut up my face
because it's too plain
well you are this

Oh, it's here
in your expensive taste
We should have framed this place
and kept it on your shelf
next to your big city dreams
It's in your touch it seems
and you wear that on your sleeve
and all those thoughts
that make you bleed

I swear it's this town I'll never see
again
If I have my way in time
Oh just to see, see, see
I swear it's this town I'll never see
again
If I have my way in time

So go ahead kid,
we loved it
sing it loud before the light hits
and we are forced to move
with the windows up we can keep the light out
you can keep the light out

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl who is so in love with a guy and he acts like he loves her too and leads her on and keeps telling her he is going to be with her, but really he doesnt care about her.

    "well haha, ha
    I tricked you once again
    because you are nothing...
    but I promise

    Someday we'll drive away"

    General CommentSounds like a growing up song.. they're desperate to grow up and be independent, and they want to get as far away from where they are as possible.

    This was the second Lydia song I heard, and is one of my favorites, too. :]
